Any cut of steak will work for this recipe, but we especially like the flavor and texture of rib-eye with these seasonings; look for steak that has been thinly cut. A cold ale, sweet potato fries and vinegary coleslaw can round out the meal.

Awesome! One of my favorite meals

I don't really leave reviews, but I love this recipe! My husband found it when I was pregnant with gestational diabetes and it was a life saver! We have made a few times. I definitely share this with people when I get the chance! We have only had it with ribeye, but the pan salsa is what makes this meal! It is always the flavor I am craving. I think it is perfect just as it is! But would be good with some add ins also.

Flavor, easy, delicious, tastes good, quick, did i mention the good flavor

I have been making this one a lot lately! The very first time I tried it, I did find that the salsa was lacking some kind of POP. So after reading some of the other reviews, I also added worcestershire, as well as minced garlic and a minced chipotle pepper in adobo. I'm kind of a wimp with spice so it gave it the perfect amount of kick without overpowering the flavor of the salsa and steak. I love to pair this with the Broiled Chipotle-Cheddar Avocado recipe that's also on here! Yum!!

Easy and healthy steak

Loved it. Everyone loved it. It's one of my personal favorites on this site. Just make a little baked beans and sweat potato fries with this and you have a great meal for everyone, not just health nuts ^_-


Loved this meal. I wound up adding garlic, oregano, onion and some worchestershire sauce to the salsa (because worchestershire in my books is an all-purpose add in). It was delicious, I'm definitely adding this to my recipe books.

Good when I was cooking something last minute!
One of my favorites!

I adore this dish! It is really tasty.

I generally add some garlic & herb Mrs. Dash to the salsa and I use a thin-cut NY strip. Delicious!

So so Easy,
